Sailor Brinkley-Cook could be her mother’s twin.

The 19-year-old model is a member of the 2018 Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit rookie class, and looks exactly like her famous model mom, Christie Brinkley, in new behind-the-scene photos. 

MJ Day, editor of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, shared some photos that captured the similarities.

In one photo, Day compared the two. 

“I swore I wasn’t going to draw comparisons today, but I’m sorry there is no denying @sailorbrinkleycook = @christiebrinkley,” she wrote.

Cook looked completely at ease on the Aruba beach for the shoot.

The teen model and her mom both graced the pages of the 2017 swimsuit edition together. 

“Obviously we loved Sailor from the get go,” Day said on the SI website. “Meeting and shooting her last year was one of the highlights of my career… Much like her mom, she embodies everything it means to be an SI Swimsuit model, but she’s doing it in a way that is very much her own.”
